Grier had deep roots in the neighborhood. She is featured on the expansive mural on Ocean Avenue near Junipero Serra Boulevard called the Lights of the OMI and its Contributors.
She taught special education for 20 years, including a stint at Denman Middle School.
A graduate of City College of San Francisco, Grier held degrees from San Francisco State University and the University of San Francisco.
She developed extensive experience as an educator and administrator at San Francisco Unified School District where she focused on equity in education and supported creating pathways from high school to college and lifelong learning.
“Her vision to strengthen connections with SFUSD and SFSU, broaden access through childcare, disability services and encourage students to stay in school will continue to inspire the community,” according to an announcement from City College of San Francisco. “Grier's own journey from community college to advanced degrees proved the power of education to transform lives.”
Grier was elected to the Board of Trustees multiple times and served as the board’s president. She was on the board during the tumultuous time when the college’s accreditation was threatened.
"I know our community college works," Grier said in a campaign statement. "My own professional and scholastic achievement is proof of that."
